Looking to get on the property ladder? A new build is a home that’s never been lived in before and is brand spanking new. Right now, there is great focus on the need to build more homes to tackle the nation’s housing shortage, so if you’re thinking of buying a new build, here are some of the benefits:
Initially, a new build is not going to require the same level of maintenance that an older property will need. New homes generally have better insulation and more eco-friendly features so you should find energy bills are lower too. New homes must be built to strict standards in terms of making a property as energy efficient as it can be. This often means that a new build can come with triple glazing, insulated walls and doors and efficient heating as standard.
When buying a house that hasn’t even been built yet, there can also be the opportunity to pick certain design elements that you prefer. When you’ve found the right home, consider using a Removal Company Cambridge like Arrowpak, a leading Removal Company Cambridge service.
Another major advantage for those just starting out in the property market is the government’s Help to Buy equity loan scheme which is only available on new build properties.
Other benefits include being able to have fixtures and fittings included that you might otherwise have to pay extra for in an older home. What comes included is highly dependent on the developer, but you can sometimes be lucky and get things like washing machines, dishwashers or wooden flooring included.
